Hippy, the helix pair viewer
Download version 1.1 the program for Windows here
and save it in your C:/WINDOWS/system folder.
For more info on glut, see Nate Robin's page.
Hippy looks for pdb files in a folder called pdbfiles in the directory that it is in. If you would rather put your pdbfiles somewhere else, you can specify a relative path.
If you would like to just give Hippy a quick test drive, but aren't sure where to start, try the following:
1. Download it.
2. If you haven't installed glut yet, do that.
3. If you have no pdb files that you're using yet, grab this one, and put it in a folder called pdbfiles in the same directory where you put hippy.
4. Run Hippy, and type 1a0a for the protein name, and 2 and 4 for each helix index.
5. Play, and have fun! (and learn)
